La Pedrera

La camisa del hombre feliz

16 June 2012

Family show put on by the Zum Zum Teatre company, featuring theatre, puppets and much, much more.

In the far-off lands of the north, many years ago, there lived a tsar who fell gravely ill. Doctors, sages and healers could not find what was wrong with him.

It was a minstrel wandering through the realm who diagnosed his illness: “This man is not happy”, he remarked. And he also gave the tsar the cure, saying “You have to find a happy man and put on his shirt”. A royal emissary travelled the world in search of this remedy, but… who is the happiest man or woman in the world?

Casa Milà, popularly known as «La Pedrera» (the stone quarry), an ironic allusion to the resemblance of its façade to an open quarry, was constructed between 1906 and 1912 by Antoni Gaudí (1852-1926). For its uniqueness, artistic and heritage value has received major recognition and in 1984 was inscribed on UNESCO World Heritage List, for its exceptional universal value. Nowadays is the headquarters of Fundació Catalunya-La Pedrera and houses a cultural centre that is a reference in Barcelona for the range of activities it organises and the different spaces for exhibitions and other public uses it contains.
